. what happened if h si inside the obama administration about whether to to the fact he was working for the cia and how to get them out. what happened was initially the obama administration didn't have the pakistanis he was working for the cia. they said he was diplomat. president obama said he's a diplomat. it was only after weeks and weeks as the situation spiraled out of control increasingly, where one of the wives swallowed rat poison because she became a new martyr and was convinced raymond davis to be treated well. ultimately the obama administration went to the pakistani government and sabrina davis is with the cia. there's got to amount of the country. in march of 2011, he was ultimately released from prison after what was blood money was paid, where the guns that the families were paid over $2 million in a massive swipe away his charges and he was released to the united states and sent to an. the entire episode was a microcosm of how fraught u.s. tech any relations have become. >> what kind of work was he doing for the cia impact of and? >> he was doing a number of differen
-existing conditions are being told basically by the obama administration, sorry, we didn't plan for you. mr. gardner: and i understand the money republicans would propose to spend to address this -- mr. wrung: and i understand the money the republicans would spend on this issue, the obama administration wants to spend on advertising, advertising the exchanges, dvertising how the obamacare will work. >> this is the helping sick americans act. tomorrow we're going to defund the preventive care act, the slush fund in the affordable care act that has been going for everything from paths and bike paths and advertising campaigns and spaying and neutering dogs, instead we're going to move that money, defund it, pay down about $8 billion on the deficit and we're going to move money into these high-risk pools that are run by the states that are going to take care of sick americans. mrs. roby: and we look forward to that debate in the next two days. we are closing in on the end of our hour, we are just joined by mr. griffin, the gentleman from arkansas and as you know, we are talking about tonight, this is ht
phase of the case begins. the very complex legal process. an obama administration official telling nbc news tsarnaev will not be given a miranda warning when he's physically able to be interrogated after receiving medical treatment. instead, the official says the government will invoke a legal rule known as the public safety exception. that will allow investigators to question tsarnaev without first advising him of his right to remain silent and be afforded legal counsel. president obama used his weekly address today to praise law enforcement and those involved in tracking tsarnaev down. >> americans refused to be terrorized. ultimately, that's what we'll remember from this week. that's what will remain, the stories of heroism and kindness, resolve and resilience, generosity, and love. >> authorities caught up with the suspect after a tip from a watertown resident. he was hiding in a boat parked outside a home. he is now in a boston hospital and nbc's ron allen is joining me from there. ron, with a good afternoon to you, let's get the very latest on his condition. are you getting word
republicans are calling on the obama administration to declare the 19-year-old suspect an enemy combatant subject to the loss of four, so intelligence officials can continue to interrogate him for as long as they deem necessary. authorities captured him in watertown, mass. friday evening. they are invoking the public .afety exception he remains hospitalized under sedation and remains unclear what kind of communication they are able to have him at the moment. judy is on the phone from north carolina, independent line. good morning, and welcome to the program. caller: thank you. my thought on the issue is that we are a large nation, an all- inclusive nation, and i believe that the boy scouts is a private organization and has the right to determine who their membership is. i believe there should be a third organization that some of the gay-rights people should put into place, and that would be the rainbow scouts. then they can put all the lbb tea in anything they wanted, -- lgbt. republican senator tim scott delivering the republican response and focusing on the events of the past week, incl
points on the backs of weary travelers. it should be to fix the problem. look, the obama administration knew about the sequester for months, for months, yet it gave the traveling public and congress only three days' notice before implementing the furloughs that are now being blamed for these delays. the f.a.a. administrator testified before the commerce and appropriations committees last week but made no mention of the magnitude and impact of delays of these furloughs that were just right around the corner. it seems completely bluesable t- completely implausible to me when hthat he didn't mention thn he testified last week. this episode is a perfect illustration of why republicans sought to give the administration even greater flexibility to ensure they could prioritize essential services. one of the areas for which that flexibility was intended was air traffic control. the fact that the administration rejected it strongly suggests a political motive is at play here. i would also remind everyone that this flexibility was reflected by nearly every -- rejected by nearly every democrat in
it this, but i feel like i should ask anyway, one of the things that obama administration did shortly after taking over from the bush administration is that president obama established an elite high value target special interrogation team. which he said that he would use for any high value terrorism targets that would be sort of the state of the art a-team on interrogations. this is a federal case. this guy is in fbi custody. is this the sort of case in which the president's a team on interrogation would be called in or would this be handled by your standard professional fbi interrogation team? >> i would say the high value target team would be in boston already and they want it interview this guy. these are u.s. citizens. and whatever the protocol that that high value team developed, is going to have to come into play. you remember, this guy came to the u.s. when he was 8 years old. he is a u.s. citizen. all of his rights are afforded but i would say that team is there. and if they are not the ones doing the interview, they are standing outside the door talking to the agent who are d
to vote against obama cared cared we need to break the obama administration. senator mcconnell for senate majority leader from the republicans announcing in 2010 that his highest priority, the senate majority leader was making barack obama the one-term president. if we had a coalition presidency were each party would elect a partner it wouldn't stand to gain as much clinical opposition. no matter what they did it was still share the white house with the other party so then it would be much freer to judge legislative proposals on their merits. so to put it another way, it's not surprising when you have a winner-take-all election for presidency whose power has grown to a level of the presidency you shouldn't be surprised that we have high levels of partisan conflict. indeed if you go back the increase in partisan conflict, to go back to the 50s and 60's there is much more of a cross party lines. if you look at partisan conflict graph it has risen since the 40s in the 50s grassley to levels we have today. presidential powers have increased at the same time so it's not surprising. so as they
, the obama administration could step in and make adjustments and a lot of people hinting that politics are already being played. several people from the obama administration are saying pressure the faa. tell them you want them to find a different way to balance their budgets. it doesn't have to be by putting these workers on furlough. they could tighten their other budget considerations. we'll see what happens when it really gets busy. ken bastida, kpix 5. >>> the next time you're getting ready to travel, you can check the status of your flight on our website, kpix.com. >>> federal officials are delaying a policy that would allow small knives, bats and other sports equipment on planes. the tsa says that the policy change has been delayed to accommodate feedback from an advisory committee made up of aviation industry, consumer and law enforcement officials. the change was to go into effect thursday. >>> coming up in our next half hour, another terror plot this time targeting mass transit. where the suspects allegedly planned to bomb a train and their ties to al qaeda. >> everyone that s
in our system. i think the immense majority of them. i have to tell you something. e obama administration has instituted a system throughout -- you don't deport 1.6 million people because you have more agents, it's because you have a system prepared to secure communities and through other federal relationships with local authorities that allow you to detain and deport the immigrants. that system is in place and it's very, very vigorous. so i would imagine that a lot of bad actors are gone. and any of the future actors if they apply -- i love for criminal aliens, foreigner, to apply for this program so that we can say, really? you're a criminal? and you applied for the program? and we go right to your house and pick you up an ke port you. >> i have a question for you about the hispanic community, you've been a real advocate for them for as long as you've been in congress and you also spend time talking to the spanish language press. can you describe how you see the community as they view this bill and through the senate as opposed to, steve and i both write for english language and what wo

't let that happen and then republicans were saying what is the obama administration doing? they're doing exactly what the republicans voted for! they're doing exactly what the sequester requires. so you know, they can't have it both ways. they can't do these dumb ass across-the-board cuts without having any impact. and we're seeing the impact. we're seeing the impact in programs particularly that hurt the poor, we're seeing the impact in head start. we're seeing the impact in food stamps. we're seeing the impact on meals on wheels, all across the board. emergency room services. now we're seeing the impact on -- we've seen the impact in the military where training has been delayed or training has been just put aside. all kinds of things. ship battleships. and we've seep the delay now with air traffic just regular passengers, trying to get from one place to the other. delays cancellations and some smaller airports, the airports actually shut down because they had to close down the tower. one way out of this. you tell me what you think about this. particularly like to hear if you were caugh

lunch -- excuse me, dinner with his teenage cousins and the obama administration has never explained why this kid was killed. he was the son of aulaqi, but his dad had been killed two weeks earlier. this tells the stories of war lords who do the operations for u.s. and al qaeda militants and yemen and elsewhere. and really at the heart of it is the fact that one of obama's enduring legacies when it comes to foreign policy, he has solidified assassination as an essential component of policy. >> they can do it in the shadows, as you pointed out. in the book, i would say there hasn't been a lot of public resistance aside from people like you and others in the press. how have they done this without facing much resistance? publicly or inside the government from people who should be stepping up and saying, wait a minute, we can't kill u.s. citizens without due process? >> right, i think there's no question that if john mccain had won the election in 2008 or mitt romney had won it in 2012 that liberals would be screaming about this stuff and saying, you know, that -- there would be this thing,
. if you look at the obama administration they tried to have a reset relation with russia. that's not how it works. it has been an absolute disaster . every time putin and obama meet putin scolds obama. here might be an opportunity to say look you don't like the chechens? is there anyway we can work together to deal with international terrorism. you may not have been worried about them before this, but you have just as much of a problem with all of the countries on your periphery that are potentially becoming radical islamic states of the -- states. is there a way to work together maybe on this one thing and then it can lead to cooperation on other things? ultimately we would love their cooperation on iran and the nuclear program, but maybe we can take these baby steps to say let's start sharing intelligence. how do you see this threat evolving? maybe we can work on that. >> do you think it was the russians that two years ago tipped off the fbi that lead them to interview literally the older 26-year-old brother? >> maybe. maybe there was kazakstan. there were a lot of other countries wher
before a military commission perhaps even at guantanamo bay in cuba. the obama administration has insisted that criminal trials can be just as effective and tsarnaev is an american citizen which could complicate putting him in a military court. the next step is filing formal charges which could come within the next day or so with an initial appearance before a federal magistrate. if he's not well enough to move, that could still be done in the hospital. lest lester? >> we want to get the latest on the conditions of the surviving suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev. ron allen is outside of the boston hospital where he is being treated. ron, what's the latest from there? >> reporter: good morning, lester. we're not hearing anything officially from the hospital staff here. they are deferring all questions to the fbi because this is of course an extremely sensitive manner. we believe he's in serious condition. we believe he was wounded at some point in the process because the man who found him found him under a tarp covered in blood was the way his condition was described then. sources have al
miranda rights. it seems the obama administration is going to be straddling the middle ground as they did a couple years ago in that you wait some time before giving them their miranda rights to make sure there's no types of threats to the public safety before reading those rights. and that seems to be the course the obama administration will be taking. >> your network is the subject of two articles i want to bring to our audience's attention nourl national journal and the headlines pete williams reporting and why he was getting the boston story right. goes into his philosophy of whale and won't say when news has been breaking over the last week or so. >> you and i know a lot of journalists in this town and i will have to say that pete williams is the best that i have ever come across so measured, so fair and so amazing that he was able to be show cased the way that he was making our network proud, our profession very proud. this was a complicated story. a lot of journalists were getting facts wrong as it was developing in real time but pete was a constant force was right 100% of the way

"the wall street journal" today reports other measures could include indictments of chinese nationals and even cyber attacks by the u.s. against the chinese hackers. there was a formal protest in china earlier this year and secretary of state john kerry said the u.s. and china have formed a group to work on the issue, but there's very deep skepticism about that since most of the chinese hacking is coming from the chinese military. anthony, norah? >> bill, thank you. time to show you some of this morning's headlines from around the globe. "the new york ti
leaders addressing the obama administration's choice to furlough 15,000 air-traffic controllers saying it raises serious safety and operational issues my next guest says the faa's claims are a smokescreen and airlines travelling public have been needlessly targeted. joining us is michael boyd of belated group international. you follow the airlines, how are these controller furloughs impacting the industry? >> they keep going for several days they will impact the industry. think of it now as senator schumer says the bad blizzard but the blizzard will end some war will impact earnings, will impact revenues. ashley: so you say there's no reason for these cuts and it is purely an exercise by the obama administration to put pressure ultimately to raise taxes. >> absolutely. i saw jay carney pulling out a jive about when you have cuts this debate is 4% of the current budget which is up and today they have after sequestration $1 billion more than they had 5 years ago and 8% fewer flights to handle. they can't justify this in any of their way. ashley: let's talk about the airlines themselves.
are being security purposes. i hope the obama administration will allow us that option that exists in our law. they have a very bad track record here. >> the white house telling reporters it would try the younger brother in federal court and that no options were considered. >> this is a matter that's decided by the department of justice and the attorney general, obviously at the top, the whole national security team supports this decision. >> military trial was not an option in this case because the 19-year-old is an american citizen. even if it provided more information about his brother who was killed last week. shep. >> shepard: catherine herridge in washington. catherine, thank you. that criminal complaint details the suspect's serious injuries. gunshot wounds to the head, the throat, the legs, and the hand. investigators say it appears the suspect shot himself as swat teams closed. in a possible attempt to kill himself they say. today, officers said he was in very bad shape by the time they took him down. >> moving up to the boat, he was actually laying down on the side of the boat.
't yet been interrogated. also why hasn't the obama administration declared the wounded terrorist to be an enemy combatant? he will not be treated as an enemy combatant. we will prosecute this terrorist through our civilian system of justice under u.s. law the united states citizens cannot be tried in military commissions the. >> bill: well some constitutional experts dispute mr. cancery's statement if you partner up with a foreign terrorist organization you become part of that. it's about interrogation not about trial "wall street journal" has by far the most section tonight left one bomber dead, one police officer dead and other bomber gravely wounded. joining us from boston brian bender "boston globe" reporter and craner. let's pick it up ms. cram kramer with the two suspects in cambridge around 10:00 p.m. thursday night. take it from there. >> yes. that's when the chaos essentially began. what happened was they come upon officer sean collier, for reasons we do not understand yet and may never understand they open fire on him. the word that has been used for that was an assassi
but is it not possible that the obama administration unlikely but possible that they would choose to designate him an enemy combatant prosecute him in military court? >> to get into that discussion now is to get way ahead of the situation and a lot of speculation and conjecture. cases like this have been made countless times. you look at the world trade center case, many other cases have been done successfully here through our criminal justice system and my guess is that is the way it is going on this one as well. >> thank you so much. david kelley, i appreciate it. we're just learning that president obama will give a statement on the failed gun control amendment that will be in the rose garden at 5:30 p.m. eastern. we'll be right back.

's approach -- obama's administration's approach. there is an assessment coming into the obama administration that the united states has overreacted to north korea. provocations and overtures. that when there was a hint from p'yongyang they would be willing to make some improvement, we would get to the negotiating table. similarly, when it was a provocation we wrap up quickly. we wanted to see if we could break that cycle. in the first few years we saw a and we generally stuck to our guns and principles and cut the door open for discussions on the conditions of what north korea had already agreed to. i think it is important to note that we should not confuse strategic patients with standing still. the u.s. has been fairly active in its approach to north korea more broadly, in terms of enacting robust sanctions against north korea. other forathe un and to enhance our sanctions and international pressure and to isolate p'yongyang. also the efforts to enhance our alliance of partnership capabilities and enhance our military presence in the region under the strategic rebalancing, also buttressed
of legalization and the obama administration's response to substance abuse. gil kerlikowske was the featured speaker at the national press club. this is 50 minutes. >> well, good afternoon, everybody. it's a great pleasure and honor to be with all of you. first, let me thank so many people for being here today. and thank you for that wonderful introduction and the information, and i'm so glad you had a chance to spend some time with general dean who's somebody i'm going to talk about a lot in a few minutes along with a couple other people up here, also, that i've been so impressed with. the drug policy issue, the drug policy problems are really complex, and they're really difficult, and that's why i'm so appreciative of this forum to be able to talk a little bit more at length about it and then, certainly, to answer the questions. let me also mention the fact that donna ledger from the "usa today" is a person that has written extensively, also, about the drug problems in this country. and i know, as was mentioned in the introduction earlier, she is in boston right now with so many other jour
. a policy decision the obama administration has made. he was a american citizen and naturalized last september and now a federal law, the national defense authorization act of 2012 that says american citizens cannot be tried in military commission. so it's not -- this debate is not a question about where he should be tried. the republicans who say he should be treated differently, their claim is that while they understand the civilian trial will go forward, they think he should be treated for now as an enemy combatant and questioned without any question about his rights, without any issue about whether information he gives would be used in his trial, and then turn back over to civilian authorities. but, clearly, the justice department will have none of that. that's not how it's going to go. >> he's in a boston hospital under heavy guard and serious condition including a gunshot wound to the throat but he is responding to some questions to a team the federal investigators in writing. any indication as to what he is saying or maybe perhaps just what they are trying to get out of him at
their rights being read, then law enforcement may be able to do so. and when the obama administration announced it was going to use the public safety exception we said, well, you might be able to do that but recognize that it is limited and narrow. and, so now, i think that might have been invobed. we don't know. that is one of the things that we don't actually currently know now. how this has proceeded. and i think what's important here is not the defendant has counsel and has gone before a judge and so we look to the system to work, which means we expect prosecutors to proceed fairly and prove their case and defense lawyers to zealously perform their duty and we'll look to see what facts they find and what arguments they make going forward. >> host: cliff may, how different is the public safety exception that can be invoked in that first phase after a detention of a suspect? how is that different than looking at military or enemy combatant status? >> guest: the main difference would be as hina has correctly said the public safety exception is very narrow and limited in time. it is not exactly
. the report put out by the constitution project is critical of both bush and obama administration's. it includes former members of congress. this is 50 minutes. >> thank you for your leadership on the task force and i want to express my thanks to the constitution project, but also to all of my fellow task force members what they brought to the table in terms of experience, wisdom, public service really made a difference in the development of this project and important report. as jim mentioned, there's more than 24 findings and recommendations. we can't cover all of those this morning that we want to hit some of the highlights. we hope he will take the entire report, study it through and look at each of those recommendations. why is this report important? it's important because we as a nation have to get this right. i looked back in history to the time during world war ii that we in turn to some japanese-americans. at the time it seemed like the right and proper thing to do but in light of history, it was an error. as of today this report will hopefully put into focus some of the a
the obama administration's argument that it was a state secret. the court ordered the cia to respond to freedom of information requests about targeted killing. a few days later, three obama officials told the daily beast that the drone program will move from the cia to the defense department. that could increase accountability and transparency. the president also responded by saying this at the state of the union. >> i will continue to engage congress to ensure not only that our targeting, detention and prosecution of terrorists remains consistent with our laws and system of checks and balances. but that our efforts are even more transparent to the american people and to the world. >> but it looks like that effort is not getting very far. the administration refused to even send a witness to testify and answer questions at today's hearings. the chair of the hearing told us the legal and policy questions surrounded targeted killings require a public debate. once again, it looks like a debate the white house would rather skip. joining us now to discuss the government's obligation to def
people to pull in. nonetheless -- >> that is not the case. >> every time the obama administration does an audit, in which they have to fire all their illegal aliens, there are americans lined around the block. there have been no problems -- >> i want to raise one point. doug holtz okayin who runs the american action forum, a smart guy, ran the congressional budget office. he told me, we should have about 500,000 legal new immigrants per year. and if we do that, the economic growth rate will rise by 1 percentage point each year for about ten years. >> and let me add something. >> what i'm saying is -- we not only need to legalize the workers here in this marco rubio reform bill. but down the road, we've got to add a half million people a year. that will make the labor force break even or somewhat higher, because that will take care of the decline. >> larry, you left out something. >> that lowers the budget deficit by 2.7 did his trillion. >> there is something else. he also finds the actual per capita income rises. so not just the entire economy grows, but the economy grows per capita b
an organization that once gave the obama administration an f previously for its efforts on gun control and that person said this issue wouldn't even be before the senate if it weren't for the white house's efforts to date. it's an issue the president has personally championed and this loss he said, sit'll be a personal defeat for him so he is going to continue to fight. >> wean the president is coming here to boston tomorrow with the first lady to participate in an interfaith service at 11:00 am eastern tomorrow morning. do we anticipate when the president starts speaking now in the rose garden he will also address what has happened here in boston? >> no. these remarks will not address, he will not address boston in these remarks. this will focus squarely only on guns. he did talk about boston earlier today in a wounded warriors event when he said unexpectedly, tragically, some of our own americans became wounded citizens earlier this week in boston. don't look for him to talk about the boston event in these rose garden remarks, wolf. >> stand by. as soon as the president comes into th
. there's a possibility it also brings them together. a week ago, president obama's administration put the president of chechnya, accused of human rights abuses, on a secret list of people not allowed to come to the united states that angered the kremlin. it angered vladimir putin, his ally. now they have in some ways, a common enemy if there's a connection at all to the broader chechen radical movement. >> peter baker, white house correspondent for "the new york times," thank you so much for your time. >>> i want to bring in wnbc's jonathan ,bèdienst. we're getting news that terror suspect, tamerlan tsarnaev who was killed in a shootout this morning is reportedly flew in and out of john f. kennedy last year and was out of the country for six months. investigators do not know if tsarnaev received any terror training while he was overseas, but it adds another piece to this evolving puzzle. >> that's the question they want to ask, what he was he doing overseize, he does have relatives in russia and he flew in and out of the country, back to kennedy airport, he flew out of new york on ja
to handle him as what they describe as an enemy combat talent. the obama administration doesn't use that term anymore it allows for an indefinite detention of someone under national security concerns. that's what they are hoping for. we will see what the justice department decides, they haven't yet. but certainly, this issue will find its way to washington. there are various house and senate committees that have already said they plan to investigate exactly issues leading up to this explosion and then the subsequent manhunt and investigation and surely those concerned about how the administration handles him in the coming days. no surprise that this group has already said that they would like this because they say frankly, this is what it's for. you find a terrorist on u.s. soil, this is how they should be treated. democrats this after the into, some have already turned around and said, look, the administration is doing just fine on this, this san american citizen, he has to be afforded his rights, the justice department is acting a i appropriate. >> adrian, our pete williams is rep
